I see the same problem on the Colorado topos I have installed. The Idaho Topos were made by Oz - I believe he's an admin at this site.

I'm new here - what's the proper protocol - should I attempt to contact him directly?

I have discovered that I can load the Idaho Topos using Mapsource. Any ideas on why BaseCamp would act differently?

You should PM -Oz-.  Provide as complete a description to him (and here) as you can describing the problem and what you did to fix it.  AFAIK, anything that loads in MapSource should also load with BaseCamp (as long as you are using the USB).  BaseCamp doesn't support the old serial cable connections.

Newbie--used old e trex for simple stuff, now have Oregon 450.  I have Win 7/64, having been reading and rereading this thread.  Basecamp downloaded and seemed to install, but doesn't work.  Sounds like installing My Trails is the way to go--except when I go to that page  I don't see anything to install or download.  Obviously I'm overlooking something, but I have tried to figure it out and read this forum and am stuck.

Help appreciated!

Same problem here:
1) Installed Basecamp
2) Installed California Topo
3) Basecamp shows only Global Map on drop down
4) Installed My Trails
5) Drop down shows Global Map and My Trails, but that's it.

Argh! What am I doing wrong?

Never mind. I uninstalled it all and reinstalled, worked OK even without my trails. I think the problem started when I had BaseCamp open while installing California Topo. It was all downhill from there!

Both BaseCamp and Mapsource need to be closed when a mapset is installed.  They only check for available mapsets when they are started,
